Konstantza Maniatopoulou was born and raised in Patras, Greece. Drawn to the arts and nature, seeking for truth, she studied Psychology in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, attained a MA in Drama and Movement Therapy (Sesame) from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and a PGDip Spiritual Guidance Through Transpersonal Dreamwork from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London. In the meantime she also got into Kundalini Yoga and Core Shamanism completing respective trainings in India, Greece and the UK. Through her work she has obtained a wide experience working with people of all ages and with various issues. Since October 2013, she has returned to Patras, where she holds a private psychotherapy practice and teaches Yoga.
In 2019, a new thirst for learning led her to become a Supervisor (Diploma in Creative Arts Supervision Training, RCSSD, University of London), complete the Basic training in the Comprehensive Resource Model for treating trauma (with Lisa Schwarz in Oct 2019, London), and embarked into Gottman’s Couple’s Therapy Training (online courses).
I work with a variety of mental health issues including trauma. Trauma can come from all sorts of experiences, including abuse and neglect, abandonment, adoption, war or witnessing acts of violence, divorce, accidents, a narcissistic parent or partner, etc. Trauma and adverse situations leave us with feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, sadness as well as poor sleep, racing thoughts, feelings of not being good enough, of not being safe, not loveable, not smart enough or feelings of anger/rage, self hate, feeling unworthy, feelings of shame, guilt, etc., etc. All of these feelings drown out our innate happiness and over time can cause physical distress and even pain and ailments. These feelings can in turn cause us to act out in ways detrimental to our natural state of happiness. Alcohol, drugs, gambling, over-eating, affairs, work-a-holism, and self-sabotage are just a few of the ways we can use to suppress or compensate for these uncomfortable conscious and sub-conscious feelings. With effort and time we are able to heal from the effects of trauma and its resulting negative self-beliefs and behaviors. Healing allows us to move on to experience the feelings of self-love, joy, peace, and happiness we all desire and have at the core of our being. Along with other therapeutic modalities, I specialize and am certified in CRM (Comprehensive Resource Model) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). They are possibly the most up-to-date and cutting edge therapies available for trauma. EMDR is an evidence-based practice endorsed by the American Psychiatric Association, the Department of Defense, the Veterans Administration and many foreign countries. More information for EMDR can be found at emdria.org. If you know of someone, a friend, patient, veteran or family member who may be struggling, please send him or her my way. I work with patients ages fifteen and above.
I have had the privilege to work directly with Lisa on many occasions. Her mentorship has been invaluable and I have been a trainer in training for about one year. I have been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in California since 2000. I specialize in moving clients through attachment disruptions, complex and acute trauma resolution, complex PTSD, PTSD, severe anxiety, addictions, depression, adoption issues, grief and loss.
I have been privileged to work with Veterans helping them move toward healing their brains and enabling them to move forward in their lives with more joy, compassion and love toward themselves and other. I am currently working part time as an independent contractor at Reconnect Intensive Outpatient Program in Pacific Palisades, California as a Trauma Specialist.
My goal is to move clients towards transformation and healing with a deep personal connection to mind, body and spirit, through greater self awareness, self compassion and personal empowerment. The CRM creates the conditions to process more rapidly and completely with greater ease and comfort to the suffering client. Ultimately, giving the client the ability to repair attachment issues with self and regulate their own bodies and attune to themselves and meet their own needs and to develop healthier relationships with others.
Prapti is a trauma-informed, queer-positive Registered Social Worker offering psychotherapy. She has completed her training in Somatic Experiencing and in CRM basic training. She also has training in mindfulness, narrative, psychodynamic and attachment theories. The focus of her Masters of Social Work was on the impact of systemic oppressions such as racism, sexism, ableism and classism on individual and collective well-being. She is also interested in how our ancestry impacts our lives, and especially how colonialism and its economy shape our identities and our interactions with others.
She helps individuals slowly and mindfully integrate their thoughts, sensations, and movements such that overwhelming life experiences are renegotiated to achieve balance and regulation in body and mind. CRM training has given her the tools to build a scaffold of resources such that clients can feel fully the truth of their lives and clear pain that once was unbearable.
Prapti is committed to building a relationship with her clients that support their unique needs, develop their strengths, and fosters their innate ability to heal.

Establishing a respectful, trusting therapeutic relationship
and creating an accepting, safe and supportive
environment for my clients is very important. Most of the
people I have had the privilege of working with initially
come with uncomfortable feelings that they are struggling
with. The core feeling is usually some level of fear; fear of
the past, the present, the future, fear that there is
something wrong with us, that we aren’t good enough,
that we can’t do things differently, fear that we will never
be happy, and fear of the unknown. We will learn how to
use the neuroplasticity of the brain to deal more
effectively with fear.
Each individual has their own unique stories and how they
have managed and learned to cope with life’s challenges.
We will explore your situation, find your personal
strengths, learn new coping methods with new skills
designed to meet your particular needs. I am passionate
about personal growth and empowering people with ways
to deal more effectively with their feelings of grief, loss,
trauma, depression, and anxiety. I teach boundaries,
communication skills, and work with relationship issues.

Kelli Sherine Fisher LMFT
Kelli received her MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. Her clinical orientation is Attachment Theory and Positive Psychology with an emphasis on Narrative Theory. Post graduation, she began working in the field of addiction plus mental illness. Upon realizing the level of trauma beneath both challenges, she began focusing on Somatic Therapy to help gently address the suffering she was witnessing. This focus now informs her practice and the results are amazing.
She is currently using as her main trauma processing modality, Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM). CRM is the cutting edge in trauma therapy. It is an advanced technique that incorporates many somatic/ spiritual / neurophysiological modalities into one discipline. She is also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) through Peter Levine’s Foundation for Human Enrichment and she holds level 1 & 2 EMDR training through Laura Parnell’s attachment based EMDR Institute.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, Kelli was an Orthopedic Massage Therapist with a BS in Sports Medicine/ Exercise Science. She continues to practice this healing art celebrating 30+ years. This interest in life science continues in Kelli’s studies in Neuroscience and her fascination with Somatic Therapies’ ability to resolve trauma and change neurobiology.
Kelli has also spent 30yrs. studying indigenous cultures and spirituality and these studies inform her practice as well. She has a deep respect for nature and she integrates native practices into her work in a very organic and supportive way.
She is also an accomplished textile artist so she also understands the challenges of going into the void and creating beauty. And in her spare time, she is a marmalade & jam maker, jewelry designer and gardener.
I have been working in the high pressure environment of prisons since 1978 and as a trauma informed integrative counsellor (extra to that) since 1989. Currently I work in the South of Scotland as a therapist, this includes Edinburgh and several large towns and cities. My work has centred around many variations of trauma source, be it post incident, work related, stress and/or violence. My specialism is in supporting survivors of every kind of abuse be it experienced in adulthood or childhood.
I currently work part of my time for a specialist agency called Open Secret which is based in Central Scotland. I practice an integrative approach to counselling as well as The Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) therapy. This is to ensure that the technique I used is tailored to the individual client.
CRM is especially effective with long held post traumatic stress disorder but can also be used for any other issues. With extensive experience of life gained through working in prisons I have far more to offer than I would have if I had chosen to work solely as a therapist and there are no life experiences that I haven’t worked with. My history of employment coupled with broad training and teaching experience I can offer a rounded, well informed approach that enables me to support people most effectively. I look forward to using my experience to support people through the most important life changes they can make.
I am a trained registered Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I work from a relationship model, which considers how our past can influence our present, relationships, meanings we have made and how this effects our current relationship to ourselves, others and our world.
If you are looking for help, support and change in your life psychotherapy/counselling/trauma psychotherapy offer an opportunity to explore in depth; relationship issues, presenting symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, abuse, addiction and mental health issues. To enable you to work towards a greater sense of integrated self and choice in your life. I offer to work with you to the best of my capacity to find what it is you need from therapy.
